You just have to poke around a bit in the 90's after Brent graduated.
This show has such a well balanced mix. Vocals can be heard right upfront but with some ambiance to them unlike 93 which features bone dry low volume vocals on the boards.
The playing is tight, nice tight runs on the guitar from garcia, great tone from Weir's guitar unlike 93 where his guitar sounded like a box of angry bees. Some of Bob's best singing is here in the 1st set. Black throated is a gorgeous version. Foolish Heart is nice and tight with most words sung not mumbled. So many roads a little slower than later versions, but Bruce adds such a nice touch on the piano this version is overlooked. Wave to the wind is horrid. Don't let that stop you, go make a grilled cheese and come back.

Stay Calm and Piss Off
To answer the question from 2012, "piss off" was in the early versions from '82. Possibly the influence of Hunter's residence in the U.K. This soundboard is significantly better than the ones from earlier in the tour: much less crowded and better separated overall. Great couple of shows. They start to turn the corner from the 91 to the somewhat sparse 92 sound. My goodness, the 11+ minute tuneup from the night before is probably the most direct harbinger. Solid, enthusiastic show. Particularly nice Touch.

...Wave to the Wind really is a bad song.
That aside, this is a great show. Love the song selections and there's some pretty nice jams with heavy keys. Yay Bruce!

That Touch Of Gray Ad Lib...
Hunter says, "say your peace and f**k off," so there's that.
Gosh Charlie's SBD sounds great. I'd hope a MATRIX of this show will be forthcoming. It's a good show, well played, the boys remembered lyrics... all around pretty good for a 1990's era show.

My first Dead show, awesome to hear this again. I guess the soundboard shows aren't downloadable? Would love to have this for the car.
May 21, 2012 Subject:
In Touch of Gray, it sounds like Jerry sings "say your piece and piss off."
Bob did ad-libs like this but I never heard Jerry do this. Or is this a case of him forgetting the lyrics?

So as to get Phil into the mix?
Wave to the Wind blah! Liked Broken Arrow much better or even the Phil holdover Just like Tom Thumb Blues. In afterthought I think The Lazy River Road was a diamond in the rough and was under appreciated.
Hey CJ, i'll be willing to get ya a copy. Shoot me your email address back in a reply.

Help landing an AUD or SBD of this how
I came a bit late to the party with respect to the Archive. In the first few years after Jerry died, I didn't stay so connected and only recently became aware of this amazing thing, too late, it seems to download this show.
This show, for personal reasons that I'll save you from having to endure, means a lot to me and I'd love to get my hands on a SBD or decent AUD.
If anyone has any thoughts about how I could acquire, I'd be very grateful.

Vince dont get enough credit
For the people who dont appreciate Vince go listen to 12/16/92 (Dicks Picks 27). He sounds just as good as Hornsby if not better on some songs and i think once Hornsby left the group Vince really had a chance to show what he could do. By that time he was way more familiar with the songs too. while Hornsby was in the band he took more of the lead keys role while Vince stayed in the back laying down more of a ryhthm keys sound. yes he did have some horrible sounds sometimes but i think it was also bob bralove messing with his key sounds alot. some of Vinces songs did suck i have to admit, Samba is not my favorite song in the world, its actually probably my least favorite, but he did do some great keyboard work while with the Dead.

A very good late Hornsby era show
Cassette problems aside, this show is a gem (save for Wave to the Wind -- always a good reminder that Jerry wasn't always the guy dragging down the band). The Loose Lucy > Desolation > Big RxR is particularly tasty. To the reviewer noting how good Vince sounded on keys -- that's actually Bruce, he doesn't leave until the end on March. Vinny is the ugly synth sound underneath. Poor Vinny. I honestly the job destroyed the band and would eventually led to his suicide. One of the worst staffing decision since the Sox let Ruth go. At any rate, the Standing on the Moon is delightful.

Based on reviews I checked this out and was pretty pleased. Still can't see how Wave to the Wind ever got in the rotation. That's a cross between I fought the law and the love boat theme. I had forgotten about that tune until I checked this out. I guess the just as horrible, "if the shoe fits" was still in my head.
Check out B RR Blues. Vince sounds damn good, he's actually playing keyboard. Wish he made better decisions on Don't ease and sugaree, ect. Oh well. Thought the man deserved some due.

This was my 1st Dead show!
I saw the Dead for the first time at the Capital Center at this show. A terrible venue from a sound standpoint. The Dead did an excellent job playing there adjusting their PA well. I did not know their catalog well and had to say this was a weird show since I did not know alot of the songs. I did like the Might Quinn as an encore. After seeing the Dead several more times and reviewing their shows, this set does not have the greatest selection but it's quirky. It was a Sunday afternoon and I'm glad my buddy called me to go see the Dead!

The original verse from Touch circa 82 was say your peace and kiss off
March 9, 2006 Subject:
I have never heard Jerry say "Say your peace and piss off!!!!" during Touch. This tour was a lot better than people make it out to be IMHO. 4 star performance, 4 star sound. That Minglewood jam gets about as hot as it ever did with Brent behind the keys.
Wave to the Wind was IMHO the #1 worst song the dead ever had a hand in writing. The lyrics are so horrible and there is so damn many words that I don't think Phil ever got it right. That "Born on the 4th of July" lyric makes me gag every time I hear it. Gimme a Corrina or a Gentlemen Start or a Way to Go Home or a Shoe Fits any day. I am not saying I really enjoyed any of those tunes, but it gives you an idea of how much I dislike Wave To The Wind.
AUD version is spliced in with SBD from Throwin on thru the end of the show. Digital copy probably had drop-outs.
GOT TO GET THEM ALL! SEE 1992,2,21 FOR DETAILS---- Moderate "wow & fluter" problems, but I dont care, got to get 'em all!!

This is the tightest version ive ever heard, BTW is pretty dam tight also, hell, the whole show is pretty dam tight! good sound

wow/flutter towards end?
There's a distinct flaw in the cassette at the end of the show, around So Many Roads through to the end. Big time wow and flutter. Weird hearing it through digital processing. Bummer. New copy, anyone?

great quality sound.
you can hear vince trying to charge up jerry...and you can hear jerry sounding like he has played the guitar for 5 days in spots...sad, but worth a listen for the historical data.

Everyone was on.
Really good show. Consistant and well played. Sound quality is excellent. At the time I remember being blown away by the set list.
